veski funds visit by Stephen Kieran

15 December

veski funds a Research Development Program by Kieran Timberlake as part of the veski awards in design 2009.

veski funded a visit by Stephen Kieran, Principle of Kieran Timberlake to Melbourne in November 2009, organised by Monash University.

Kieran Timberlake's work examines approaches to low energy, low environmental impact buildings of all types and sizes. The practice explores ways to interweave sustainable design systems around the programs they support. This is exemplified by projects such as Cellophane House, an offsite fabricated dwelling commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art's exhibition 'Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling'.

In 2003, Kieran Timberlake published the book 'refabricating ARCHITECTURE' (McGraw-Hill), which examines how manufacturing methodologies are poised to transform building construction. The premise of this book is based on the belief that architecture is not about style but about substance, and the very methods and processes that underlie its making.

Stephen Kieran delivered a number of workshops as well as a Public Lecture which was held at the State Library of Victoria on Thursday 3 December 2009.
